Yes i Went through,JIRA 4 is connected to HSQLDB and,Now we copuld like to use mysql for jira 6,

So I have connected to to Mysql DB from JIRA 6.And taking backup of HSQLDB og jira4.May be this is the problem to get errors?

I am able to connect Mysql DB perfectly but not able to take backup of data from HSQL BD to MYsql.

After clicking of Import your existing date. After the that i am providing file name restore section.But it is not processing 100%.And too it is redirect to

http://localhost:5050/secure/SetupApplicationProperties!default.jspa to this page

I believe the problem you are facing here is the matter of incremental upgrades. As far as I can recall, it is not possible (or rather, not advisable) to jump from JIRA 4 to JIRA 6 directly. What I would suggest is to perform step-by-step upgrade from version to version. The reason for this is because there are some major changes between 4 and 6, in which a direct upgrade may break the entire process.

I would suggest the following:

  • JIRA 4 > JIRA 4.4 (for user management migration)
  • JIRA 4.4 > JIRA 5.0 (for updated entries in the database)
  • JIRA 5.0 > JIRA 5.5
  • JIRA 5.5 > JIRA 6

Since you are doing this from HSQLDB to MySQL, might as well have a test database for the upgrade (a separate one from the production version). Create an XML backup of the JIRA 4 instance, setup the test instance for JIRA 4.4 + MySQL test database, and import the XML into it.

Then, as you install JIRA 5 and beyond, just point the $JIRA_HOME directory settings to the test instance's $JIRA_HOME. Example would be:

  1. JIRA 4.4 on /home/testuser/jira4.4-app; $JIRA_HOME in /home/testuser/jira-home
  2. JIRA 5.0 on /home/testuser/jira5.0-app; $JIRA_HOME in /home/testuser/jira-home
  3. ... and so on

This will ensure that whenever you install a new version and point the JIRA_HOME of that new version to a particular point, the instance will be upgraded.

Once you are done with all of it, create the XML backup from the test JIRA 6 instance to your production JIRA 6 instance.

we have backup of jira jira 5.1.5

Even this backup also not able to move inside mysql DB with jira 6

Ok, I have done the same but I am getting following exception
